Comment from FRONTEO Korea Representative Kang Sang Jung



Representative of FRONTEO Korea Kang Sang Jung


 "We are very pleased to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our founding. FRONTEO Korea has been leading the eDiscovery market since its inception as Korea's first eDiscovery vendor. Even now, 10 years later. Its position has not changed. In recent years, patent lawsuits against Korean companies have been frequently filed, and FRONTEO Korea's presence in South Korea as the only vendor that provides e-discovery services utilizing AI is further enhanced. I feel that it is increasing.


 We were able to accumulate the largest number of discovery support results in Japan because of FRONTEO's AI solution, which has strengths in data analysis in Asian languages ​​such as Japanese, Korean, and Chinese, and enables accurate analysis of data in Korean. I think that. Since most eDiscovery solutions are developed based on English, there are problems such as poor analysis accuracy in Korean and support for file formats used only in Korea. The accuracy of analysis of Asian languages ​​by FRONTEO's AI is highly evaluated in South Korea, and the speed of analysis and the fact that it has the largest data center in South Korea are also important advantages.
